KMMS in the community
Kent and Medway Medical School is the first medical school in the region and will help meet the demand of the clinical workforce needed to support the rising population in Kent and Medway in the future.
At KMMS, we are committed to inspiring future healthcare professionals by raising aspirations, supporting young people’s choices and encouraging progression into medicine or health related careers.
We work closely with schools and sixth-form colleges across Kent, Medway and further afield, to encourage students to consider studying medicine. We support prospective students to gain valuable insights, advice and information that will enable them to understand whether a medical degree is right for them, information and guidance about what qualifications are required, and how to produce the strongest application to medical school.
We also support parents and carers across the south east to give accurate and detailed information about KMMS and medicine as a career, and to explore opportunities for prospective students.
We attend careers fairs and events in the region to provide information to students who are interested in applying to study medicine.
Widening access to medicine
We want to encourage aspiring doctors from all backgrounds to seriously consider medicine as a career.
We are committed to widening access to medical degrees and have ambitious targets to recruit students from Kent, Medway and further afield, who have the talent and aspiration to study medicine, and are from under-represented groups or disadvantaged backgrounds.
We offer a range of widening participation activities for schools and colleges. Working with Year 9s and upwards, our sustained outreach programme will prepare talented young people from Kent and Medway to study medicine with us.
Both Canterbury Christ Church University and University of Kent have a proven record of effective, collaborative and evidence-based widening participation activity.
If you have any questions about any of our programmes, please contact us.
“Through the excellent and informative outreach work from KMMS we now have students who are very excited about medicine and understand their next steps”
